The Rachael Ray Show veteran Shane Farley has been named executive producer of FABLife, Disney-ABC Domestic TV’s upcoming daily syndicated talk show featuring Tyra Banks leading a panel of lifestyle experts. Joining Farley on the show, which premieres in September, are Rebecca Mayer (Pivot’s Take Part Live) as co-executive producer, and Karl Newton and George Davilas as senior supervising producers. Additionally, I hear that Ashley Gorman, who recently exited his role as director on ABC’s The View, is in negotiation to join FABLife in the same capacity.
In addition to a six-year stint on The Rachael Ray Show, where he served as supervising producer and co-executive producer, Emmy winner Farley has worked on Isaac, The Wayne Brady Show, The Rosie O’Donnell Show, VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live With Nick Lachey and The Gossip Table, which he also created. He also has consulted on The Talk and The Voice.
Cleared in over 90% of the country, FABLife (formerly The FAB) will broadcast from Los Angeles in front of a live audience. In addition to Banks, the lifestyle panel includes Chrissy Teigen, Joe Zee, Lauren Makk, and Leah Ashley.
